The French striker considers leaving Chelsea as his game time has reduced radically.

Since joining


in January 2018,

Olivier Giroud

has appeared in 95 games for the London club and has managed to score 29 goals in all competitions. The French striker has won the FA Cup and Europa League with the Blues and has improved his reputation as one of the best Premier League forwards during his time in Chelsea. However, since the start of the previous season’s second half Frank Lampard has not used Giroud as much as before. After the addition of

Timo Werner

, Giroud has gotten even less game time as the German star seems to be in perfect form. In a recent interview with Telefoot, The former Arsenal striker has spoken about his situation at Chelsea and his plans for the future.

"It's worrying. I thought I still had a role to play at Chelsea but my playing time is getting reduced a lot. It's going to have to change or a decision must be made,

"I am clear-headed about my situation: I will have to make a decision in January. I hope to make the right one, as I have always done."

Giroud believes that despite his age he can still perform as a top-level striker.

"Even if some people talk about my age, I still feel very good physically. I have a lot of desire and freshness, and what makes a career last is also the head," the Frenchman added.

"We would like things to be a little easier, but we grow through adversity. And as my buddy [Laurent] Koscielny often says: I am the best when my back is against the wall."
